Attention Ark. Filmmakers: Don't f*** with The Jack

Posted By on Wed, Apr 25, 2012 at 4:52 PM

Arkansas director Eric England, whose Arkansas-filmed retro-slasher flick "Madison County" will be out on DVD early next month, recently blocked a fan on Facebook. Said fan, who straightfacedly refers to himself as "The Jack," has now posted a response video (seen above) in which, among other things, he admits that he was looking forward to seeing "Madison County" so much that he went ahead and torrented it (AKA: ripped it off illegally) online. NOTE: NSFW due to language and tearing-sheetmetal voice ("DIRECTOR! PRODUCER!")

BONUS: The Jack has now posted an even more unintentionally hilarious video calling for a boycott of the film, in which he contends: "the director is mean! He's a jerk! He has no compassion to his fans! His name is Eric England, and he is a very bad director, because he does not care for his fans! Nor does he care about his reputation in the film industry, which I will stinglehandedly tarnish, because I can do that!"

  • Filmmaker Rebecca Thomas to present 'Electrick Children' April 22 at Ron Robinson

    March 24, 2015
    For this month's Arkansas Times Film Series screening, we'll be welcoming the writer-director Rebecca Thomas, who will present her 2012 debut feature "Electrick Children." The film follows a fundamentalist Mormon teenager who comes to believe she's been impregnated by listening to a cassette tape, her first experience with rock music, and runs away to Las Vegas looking for answers. The New York Times called it "a playful urban fable, about the collision of country and city mice that suggests a variation of 'The Wizard of Oz,'" and "neither comedy nor drama nor satire but a surreal mélange infused with magical realism." /more/
